Interesting to read that the builder of the other Gnat posted here a few hours ago had 'issues' with the fit. I definitely did !! - The separate section between the gear bays fought me all the way and when I'd finished painting and decalling, came to insert the jet-pipe and ended-up with a 10mm split in the under-fuselage join.... B*gger !!

Ahh well, it's only plastic modelling, not brain surgery, right ?? :raincloud:

I've attempted to build 2 of these and ended up binning them as the fit was so rubbish. Yours looks fantastic!

I made the mistake of painting fuselage before putting it all together. I could have fixed the gaps otherwise. That and the instructions that came with the kit were rather confusing round the undercarriage area. I'd have put the wheels on the right way round otherwise. :banghead:

Sad to hear about the fit, these kits were designed for beginners ?? That fit problems made your result even greater, well done !
